STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Mr. President, thank you very much for the invitation. And, by the way, thank you very much for the shout-out you gave at your press conference about ten days ago. 

DONALD TRUMP: Thank you.

DOOCY: And, by the way, thank you very much for the shout out you gave at your press conference about ten days ago. 

TRUMP: That's true, I did. You have treated me very fairly, and I appreciate it.

DOOCY: Did you take much heat for that from the other networks?

TRUMP: No, not really, I think they know it's true. You know, they know what's fair and not, but you have treated me very fairly. And I've been a friend of your show for a long time. Remember those call-ins, right? 

DOOCY: For years.

TRUMP: Maybe without those call-ins, someone else is sitting here.
